Spring 2009 Television
Ages: 6 - 10 yrs.
Network: PBS
Review:
Fetch! With Ruff Ruffman, a reality game show parody that treats kids with respect and cats with disdain continues its quirky charm. Ruff Ruffman, an enterprising, animated canine with bouncing eyebrows, hosts his own game show from Studio G. It’s really a garage, but Ruff has delusions of grandeur. Each season, he invites six kids to compete in a variety of tasks. Contestants can earn up to 100 points per episode, either by working out a math or science problem or by taking quizzes while following the action from studio G. Sometimes though, it’s just goofy fun. Ruff is assisted by the persnickety cat Princess Blossom Pepper Doodle Von Yum Yum, a new mouse intern named Chet, and a variety of unwelcome relatives including an evil identical twin brother. Full of laughs and great action, the show has broad appeal.
